What do current members have to say?
“I joined Inner Circle in March and it’s been life changing. It's helped me establish and maintain a discipline around my work that had been hard to achieve with consistency on my own. In the short time I’ve worked with the group, I completed a comprehensive edit of my manuscript that I had been trying to finish for nearly a year. It’s truly a magical thing."
"The support provided is impactful and fun while also making us all better writers. It’s the ideal hub for aspiring writers, providing professional writing support and accountability to what feels like a family of like-minded cool cats who have a story bursting to come out. There is absolutely no place I'd rather be from Monday to Friday."
"We started as a group of writers in various stages of memoirs & other writing projects. Over the months we've written together daily, a beautiful dynamic has evolved. My writing & joy in doing it have grown through discussion & connection with this group of people, friends, comrades—all with unique stories and unique perspectives."
"The Inner Circle daily sessions have broken my fears around writing and connected me with so many gifted, supportive and inspirational writers. The opportunity to workshop my work and learn a template for telling my story is cultivating unspeakable confidence to venture into other online literary groups and share my work."
"I’ve had the idea to write a book for many MANY years and I now having a daily writing practice I look forward to showing up for. This group is the only place that’s helped me write. Anna David knows her stuff and I lean in to learn from her. Nothing gets in the way of my writing time because this group makes it easier to show up to the blank page and to face myself in ways I never have before."
"This group has been a life saver for me during a time of so much uncertainty and isolation. It’s allowed daily connection and new friendships outside this writing group to form. And our host is absolutely amazing at running this for all of us. Oh, and did I mention all the bonus materials we get and how nice it is not to write alone? Join us, you’ll be greeted with open arms!"
“Without this guidance, I would have never finished my memoir. Having a safe and positive place where we can read other's writing and give feedback is golden. This is such a safe and honest group; I am grateful to be part of this group of talented writers who are supportive of one another.”
“I am so grateful for this group. I've always wanted to write but I didn’t have the discipline. The group gave me purpose during the pandemic and also kept me coming back, and now I feel I am shaping my story day by day. The group as well as Anna’s tools and teachings gave me a new perspective not only in my writing skills but also in my life.”
